My daughter’s hamster is a cute little pet, but obsessed.

She’s on a mission! Apart from running half-way to China every night on the outside of her hamster wheel (with her bum firmly planted against the side of the cage) she has decided that her sole purpose in life is to eat her way out of that cage.

I swear she has a plan! By morning she collects everything and anything edible that comes within reach and hides it in her little house. By evening she starts eating her way through the cage. And by night, she exercises.

I am absolutely certain that she thinks she’s Steve McQueen and I half expect to see her on a motorbike, riding off into the distance…. :-)

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
